There are more than 900 electric cooperatives in the U.S. that serve 42 million members.
Southern Indiana Power, your local electric co-op, serves more than 9,800 members with lines stretching across 1,600 miles in four counties. So, what makes being a member of an electric cooperative unique?
We’re all in this together. You are a member — not a customer — of Southern Indiana Power. And that means you have a voice when it comes to the way we do business.
This month, at our annual membership meeting, you have the option to vote for your board of directors. These directors play a key role in making important decisions for our co-op, which is why members’ voices must be heard.
Your co-op is managed by farmers, professionals, business owners, fathers, mothers, etc., who live near you. Your directors want what you want — affordable energy bills and the comfort of knowing lights will turn on when you flip a switch.
With those goals in mind, we work throughout the year to invest in our electric system and keep power reliable. We focus on educating members on how to use energy efficiently. We talk to you in the grocery store and on the street, listening to your concerns and ideas.
We’re founded on a set of seven principles, including voluntary and open membership. Anyone who needs electricity within our service territory, regardless of race, religion, sex or economic circumstances, can become an owner of this hometown co-op.
We’re looking forward to seeing you the next time we join our voices to guide the co-op. Don’t miss Southern Indiana Power’s annual meeting on Tuesday, April 18. We are moving our annual meeting back to our original Tuesday night in April, hoping for cooler weather for all outdoor activities.
The districts and areas with elections this year are:
- District 3: Carter and Harrison townships in Spencer County.
- District 4: Hammond and Huff townships in Spencer County.
Information about the directors up for election to represent these districts is published here.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the election process or need clarification on determining the district in which you reside, please contact the office at 812-547-2316. We hope to see you on April 18 at the Spencer County 4-H Youth and Community Center for the 2017 annual meeting.
